What is Android Beam and How to Share Content with NFC Technology
The Ice Cream Sandwich unveils some of the additional features like NFC sharing and one thing which would be talking in this section is the Android Beam feature.
What is Android Beam?
The Android Beam is an NFC based technology with which you can quickly share webpages, videos, apps, pictures by simply tapping the two phones together within the reach of NFC range. You can also share other important data like files with other enabled devices.
This feature also works to share Google Maps information, video being watched on YouTube, contact information and application which you are browsing on your browser can also be shared.
Sharing Content with Android Beam
Suppose if you are browsing video on YouTube on one of the NFC phone you can easily share with the other NFC enabled device.
Android Beam Limitations
And importantly Android Beam would be the feature which would be only available on the NFC module enabled device and it wouldn’t be available on all the Android phones. But looks like slowly we would see more number of device coming with NFC module as its just adding a chip with relevant program on the existing phones. We have listed few of the Android NFC enabled phones and along with that we have also provided a listed of upcoming NFC enabled devices whose count will grow by this year end.
